As you may know, a few months ago, I published a book on how Henry Kissinger, in early 1971, personally decided to abandon the South Vietnamese nationalists to “fate.”
For me, that decision of his, which was compounded in infamy by the abandonment of the Cambodians to the Khmer Rouge and the Lao and the Hmong to oppressive subjugation, should define his flawed use of power as a substitute for morality, as we assess, in retrospect, his contributions to global affairs.
As I noted in my book, he gave new efficacy to the ancient Athenian boast that “The strong do what they can; the weak suffer what they must.”
If you want to know the facts and “dot the i’s and cross the t’s” on his sabotage of Vietnamese nationalist aspirations, please consider reading my book, Kissinger’s Betrayal: How America Lost the Vietnam War.
